Just months ago, Lelands sold Tom Brady's 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket autographed rookie card sold for a record-breaking $2.25 million, and this is another specimen coming to light - only in HIGHER GRADE! The undisputed "Best of the Best," TB12 just captured his 7th Super Bowl title on the strength of his 5th SB MVP award, and the 199th selection in the 2000 NFL draft's accomplishments have sealed his position as the (G)reatest (O)f (A)ll (T)ime. Just like Tom's seven Super Bowl victories, there are only seven of these BGS MINT 9 examples in the entire world, with NONE GRADED HIGHER! For a card that was produced in 2000 with a print run of 100, you would think at least one would receive a grade of 9.5 or 10, however Brady's Contenders autographs are notorious for being incredibly condition sensitive and nearly impossible to grade at a high level. (91) total submissions have been graded by Beckett and PSA, and even though a few of those could have been people resubmitting, the number being so close to the print run of 100 leads us to believe there may never be another BGS 9 example. Sub-grades are: Centering 9.5; Edges 9, Corners 8.5; and Surface 9. Signature is graded perfect 10/10. Numbered #8/100, which could very well stand for Brady's Super Bowl title count if he is victorious next season. Soon after Brady won the Super Bowl in February of 2021, a few owners of the other BGS 9 versions were asked if they would accept $5 million for theirs, and each one declined. Even as more of these cards trickle into the market, in lower grade, the incoming flow of BGS 9's has been non-existent and may end with this specimen. Truly a historic offering.
